Traffic issues have remained constant throughout MLPA’s history. The associations was founded in the ’60s to defeat the Georgia Department of Transportation’s plan to bisect the neighborhood with a freeway. Today, MLPA’s traffic remains one of its highest priorities.
The Traffic committee has recently been expanded as the problems with I-85 and Renew Atlanta’s plans for Monroe have raised the profile of this hot button issue.
Besides conducting forums where neighbors can raise concerns, it is working with the city to ensure that cut through traffic does not become more worrisome. The MLPA board is now raising funds to conduct a traffic study/develop a master plan. Donations to fund this important work are greatly appreciated.
